Instructions: How To

Similar to other Fly variations, this isolation exercise primarily targets your chest and shoulders. The use of handle bands allows for more precise control over the angle of your resistance, as well as increases resistance as you progress through your range of motion. The lessened resistance at the start of the movement means you’ll place less tension on your shoulders.

  1. Wrap a resistance band around a pull up bar or high fixed object and stand in front of the anchor point in an upright staggered stance holding on to the handles with extended arms to the sides of your shoulders facing your palms forward.
  2. Slightly lean your torso forward and pull the handles down to belly button height keeping your arms extended with slightly bent elbows.
  3. Return to the starting position.
